Choosing Colors

The paint palette is a direct result of community direction. The residents of Lauderhill felt the need to have guidelines in choosing colors for painting residential structures in order to protect property values, personal investments and protect neighborhood continuity. The Mayor and City commission passed a paint palette resolution after the community, the Development Review Committee and staff participated in public meetings.

The City of Lauderhill Residential Color Palette is organized into three themes for paint selections: Tropical, Neutral-1 and Neutral-2. Do not mix and match outside the paint themes. Please note that the paint color shown on the Paint Palette may not represent the actual paint color approved due to inconsistencies with printer reproductions or com- puter monitor calibration. The homeowner should verify the paint selections with the actual Behr paint identification name or number/paint swatch. Other paint manufacturers are permitted as long as these colors are matched to the Behr paint number/paint swatch.
